Winter is upon us, the clocks have gone back, and a new season calls for new rituals.
We often hear the term green, or sustainable in the beauty industry. Typically, the term is used to describe products using environmentally-friendly formulations, production practices or packaging methods. Thankfully, finding these eco-friendly products is becoming easier and more accessible than ever, with conscious beauty brands using natural ingredients and environmentally friendly packaging.
And with World Vegan Day being held on November the 1st this year, we have curated a selection of products that are not only sustainable but will aid cellular repair, rejuvenating and renewing of the skin and hair. Self-care never looked so good…
